London Produce Show and Conference Announces 2015 Dates
The 2015 show will stand out once again as the UK's produce event of the year, attracting a full house of exhibitors and attendees from around the globe to London for a boutique one-day trade exhibition. The show will be complemented by a series of educational seminars, chef demonstrations, a gala cocktail reception, student programme and a thought leaders breakfast panel hosted by world-renowned Perishable Pundit Jim Prevor.
Presented jointly by the UK's trade association for the fruit, vegetable and flower industries - Fresh Produce Consortium (FPC), and Produce Business magazine, the 2014 London Produce Show and Conference was the talk of the UK produce scene. The 127 exhibition booths filled Europe’s largest five-star exhibition area at the Grosvenor House covered virtually every produce category and a wide mix of the countries that provide produce into the UK market. Retail, wholesale and foodservice buyers from not only the UK, but Scandinavia, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Canada, the USA, South Africa, the Middle East and Russia added to the international flavour and spread the opportunity to create new business far beyond the British border.
Well over 1,000 attendees had ample time to cover the show floor and were also presented with a series of occasions that allowed them to share and learn from each other, build new relationships and enjoy the sumptuous surroundings of the venue.
Vision for 2015
Next year’s event promises a similarly enriching experience, but organisers have pledged to pull out the stops to deliver yet more value to every exhibitor and attendee. Tommy Leighton, managing director of the show, said: “It was very important to us to secure a second year at this fantastic venue as it really did deliver an experience that you just don’t ordinarily get at trade shows. The deliberately limited number of exhibitors is given every chance to be seen and heard, and every visitor the opportunity to see the entire show floor – that is always our number one aim. The venue provides the ideal backdrop for a relatively informal and convivial atmosphere that exhibitor feedback tells us was conducive to building relationships and importantly, doing business.
“The shows within the show – our fantastic line-up of top London and New York chefs (led by Show Ambassador Valentine Warner in 2014) and seminars and workshops were also a great hit, taking place on the balcony above the main show floor, so no-one had to venture far from the action to find great food, excellent company and fascinating, educational entertainment. Watch out over the next few weeks and months for our announcements of new and exciting features in 2015.”
Produce Business is also an organiser of the New York Produce Show and Conference, which is all set for its fifth edition in the Big Apple on December 2-4, 2014. Editor in chief of the magazine Jim Prevor said: “We were so grateful to the produce industry for their overwhelming support of the brand-new concept we launched in London this year. This is no ordinary trade show, and the unparalleled positive feedback we have received would suggest that just about everyone present recognised what we were trying to achieve and bought into it wholeheartedly.
“Having done something with the same ethos and objectives in New York, we were pretty confident that the UK market would see the value of the London show, but in the first year of course you still rely on the forward-thinking and hungry businesses to spot the huge opportunities that lie within such an event. That so many people did was extremely gratifying and it is that belief that drives us forward with a desire to deliver an even better show next year.”
